 The ongoing epidemic has seen us adjusting to the 'new normal'. Over a period of several months now, by and large, most professionals have reasonably figured out the routines that work for them.

The adjustment to the new way of working isn't limited to routines, it is also about embracing new modes of communication. This phase has also given birth to terms like 'Zoom Fatigue' that was non-existent before.

While video conferences calls have become a norm now, one of the most underrated skills to master in current scenario is one's writing skills.

#Writing has become a default way to connect with colleagues. Be it responding by slack messages, chat apps, writing emails or taking meeting notes, Writing is turning out to be a crucial skill in these times.
